Sketch ins- a tel design technique

  1. 1. Sketch-ins:a TEL Design Technique Brock Craft London Knowledge Lab
  2. 2. For the MOOCUseful as a method in the design toolkitDraws upon best practicesExposes MOOC learners toEncourages collaborative, local activitiesThere are remote sketching tools too!Today: try out a Sketch-in, consider this interms of the MOOC
  3. 3. Sketching as design thinking● Used in many design based fields: architecture, engineering, visual communication, and part of the pedagogy● encourages playing with ideas, and making visible the invisible● supports exploring half-baked ideas● well accepted in HCI community
  4. 4. The research● Externalisation (Fallman, 2003)● Controlled experiments: Balasubramanian, Turoff, & Ullman, (1998), van der Lugt (2002), and Heiser, Tversky, & Silverman, (2004)● Linking with creativity: Suwa & Tversky, (1997), Goldschmidt, (1991)● Cognitive supports: Boden (2004), Goel ( 1992), Plimmer (2002), and Tversky et al., (2003)● Buxton (2007), Laseau (2000), drawn from practitioners experiences
  5. 5. What its good for● Invite a wide range of design ideas● Raise questions about the design● Identify and explore design problems● Elicit representations of/views on these problems● Spark creativity● Suggest alternatives and solutions
  6. 6. Sketch-ins: principled sketching1. Framing the area of enquiry for the Sketch-in session(s)2. Organising the session and selecting participants3. Running the session and collecting data4. Reflecting upon the generated resultsTools: big paper, pens, pencils, setting, datacollection
  7. 7. Sketch-ins: session stages1. Ramping up2. Fluency/Flow3. Regrouping (if needed)4. Refinement5. Denouement/ClosureChallenges: getting "stuck", dynamic displays
